A Quick One
This will be just a real short post. There is still nothing too new to report on the launch front. We’re getting closer and closer. Thanks for hanging in.
I went to an Atmosphere and Brother Ali show a couple of weeks ago. I don’t know if the rest of the world appreciates the underground hip hop scene that has emerged out of the Rhymesayers label and the Twin Cities, but if you’re not paying attention, you’re totally missing out. Going beyond Atmosphere and Brother Ali, you must check out P.O.S, Doomtree and Cecil Otter. In my opinion, this is the most talented music movement happening in the country right now. Has been for a while.
One item that was really interesting durning the show was a couple of comments made by rappers Slug and Brother Ali. Sean (aka Slug) of Atmosphere told the crowd that it was cool if they were recording the show on their phone or whatever. He emplored the audience to not post it up on Youtube. “Those are your memories. Show that shit to your girlfriend or little brother or something, but don’t post it up on Youtube. Make all of them (Youtubers) get their own memories.”
Brother Ali added, “yeah, store this in the SIM card in your head.”
These are also guys who release music for free online from time to time. They play all ages shows. They show up at record stores and talk to fans. They hand out fliers on their own at other hip hop shows. I’ve been to a few of their shows now, and they have always appreciated their fans. They are always thanking the fans for letting them do what they do and coming out to support them. I don’t get this kind of customer service at my bank. No wonder I’m more loyal to these guys.
